My top favorites are Viper and Phyton. They both have the same fetures, almost the same in my opinion, except for the price. Phyton is considered a top of the line class thus commands a higher price than Viper. So if you want to save a little, I'll recommend getting Viper.

To be honest Viper, Python and Hornet are pretty much the same except for pricing and some little extra options that can usually be interchanged between them all. They are all made by the same company (DEI) so it's like a GM of alarm systems.

Note: This is only ONE level of security. You might want to look into a column lock and if it's really bad possibly shaving some locks. I've become a fast window swapper since the last 2 incidents I suffered years ago.

I'll start with the column lock then invest in a system...shaved doors...how much would that run me? Sounds expensive.

Correct.

Anything made by DEI is worthy of praise. 2 way paging system by Viper
has been my favorite. I've had them since 2000 and they last too.

Hidden battery kill switch is also a good idea. They have remote location one's.
There's also a fuel toggle to the fuel pump relay you can do. That should also be hidden.

There are also good suggestions here:

I will suggest getting some black paper and covering the VIN plate in your windshield. When my SS was stolen, the thief apparently had a set of keys (made from the VIN through the windshield) and just started it up and drove it away. I hadn't installed an alarm yet, of course, since crime in that neighborhood was to my knowledge very low.

Just sayin'; it's an extremely cheap thing to do and can only help.
